MORR1SVILLE and HYDE PARK. Thursday, January 22, 1891. A WONDERFUL WORLD. REV. Drt. TALMAGE PREACHES AN ABLE SERMON ON "COME." This Word May Be Used for Good or for Evil It I.i I'ouiid Many Times iu the Scriptures It Beckons, Other Word Drive. I Duooklyx, Jan. 13. Dr. Talniage preached the following sermon this niorning to an overflowing congregation in the Academy of Music, this city. At night, when The Christian Herald ser vice was held in the New York Acade my of Music, fully six thousand persons were massed in the large building. A marked solemnity pervaded the assem bly, and at its close many persons in various parts of the house rose at the invitation of the preacher to ask for prayers for their salvation. Dr. Tal uiage chose the following texts for his sc-rmon: "Come" (Gen. vi, IS); "Come" Rev. sxii. 17). Imperial, tender and all persuasive is this word "Come." Six hundred and !seventy-eight times is it found in the Scriptures. It stands at the front gate (of the Bible as in my first text, invit-!ir..-; antediluvians into Noah's ark, and it stands at the other gate of the Bible Jas in my second text, inviting the post diiuvians into the ark of a Saviour's mercy. Come is only a word ot lour letters, but it is the queen of words, and nearly the entire nation of En glish vocabulary bows to its scepter. It is an ocean into which empties ten thousand rivers of meaning. Other weirds drive, but this beckons, j All moods of feeling hath that word 'Com?.'' Sometimes it weeps arid (sometimes it laughs. Sometimes it prays, sometimes it tempts and some times it destroys. It sounds from the door of church and from the seraglios er called the Princess Alice, with a crowd of excursionists aboard, sank in the Thames, and there was an awful sacrifice of life. A boatman from the shore put out for the rescue, and he had a big boat, and he got it so full it would not hold another person, and as he laid hold of the oars to pull for the shore, leaving hundreds helpless and drowning, he cried out, "Oh, that I had a bigger boat !" Thank God, I am not thus limited, and that I can promise room for all in this gospel boat. Get in ; get in ! And yet there is room. Room in the heart of a par doning God. Room in heaven. jof sin, from the gates of heaven and .the gates of hell. It is confluent and accrescent of all power. It is the heiress of most of the past and the almoner of 'most of the future. "Come!" You 'may pronounce it so that all the heavens will be heard in its eadenccs, or pro nounce it so that all the woes of time and eternity shall reverberate in its one Kvl!;:lle. It is on the lip of saint and pn.Shgate. It is the mightiest of all solicitants either for good or bad. ALL THE POWKIt OF CmilSTIAXITT IS iy THAT WOliD. Today I weigh anchor, and haul in p!; inks and set sail cn that great v, i-.l, nlrliongh I am sure I will not be M. ro reach the farther shore. I will let down the fathoming line into this sea and try to measure its depths, and, though I tie together all the cables and cordage I have on board, I will not be able to touch bottom. All the power 'of the Christian religion is in that word J 'Come." The dictatorial and com 'inandatory in religion is of no avail. Tha imperative mood is not the appro pri'ife mood when we would have peo ple savingly impressed. They may be coax'.il. but they cannot be driven. ' Our hearts are like our homes; at a friendly knock the door will be opened, hut an sift em pt to force open our door -would land the assailant in prison. Our 'theological seminaries, which keep jyoung men three years in their curric ulum before launching them into the liini.stry, will do well if in so short a X'w.io they can teach the candidates for the holy oCioe how to say with right (emphasis and intonation and power that one word "Come!" That man ,-wio luis suelj efficiency in Christian "work, tint that woman who Jias sueh Jpower to persuade people to quit the Jwrong and begin the right, went through a series of losses, bereave- iments, persecutions, and the trials of twenty or thirty years before they could make it a triumph of grace every .time they uttered the word "Come." MAST SLAIX BY THAT WOltD COME. ion must remeniDcr tnat in many leases our "come has a mightier peoine" to conquer before it has any taliect nt all. Just give me the accu 4-ate census, the statistics, of how Jmariy are down in fraud, in drunken iness, in gambling, in impurity or in vice of any sort, and I wdl give you fhe accurate census or statistics of how nany have been slain by the word "come." "Come and click wine glass es with me at this ivory bar." "Come land see what we can win at this gam Sag table." "Come, enter with me this Vlotibtful speculation!" "Come with kno and read those infidel tracts on junnsnanity. "uome with mo to a place of bad amusement." "Come Kvith me in a gay bout through under ground New York." If in this city . . i- i I - Luere are twenty mousana wno are 'down in moral character, then twenty thousand fell under the power of the (word "come. I I was reading of a wife whose hus band had been overthrown by strong drink, and she went to the saloon where he was. ruined and she said. "Give me back my husband." And the bartender, pointing to a maudlin and battered man drowsing in the corner of the bar room said, "There he 'Jim. wake up; here's your wife come for you. " And the woman said ,"1 hi you call that my husband ? What have you been doing with him? Is jtli.-it the manly brow? Is that the clear eye? Is that tho noble heart that jl married ? What vile drug have you .1.-. I . -, ,. fc'ivfu mm uiai uas turned mm into a .fiend? Take your tiger claws oil of iiiui. Uncoil those serpent folds of jevil habit that are crushing him. Give mo back my husband, the one with ; i t -l i wLoui i stoou at uie aitar ten years ago. Give him back to mo 1" Victim was he, as millions of others have been, of the word "Come!" COJIE with us. Now we want all the world over to harness this word for good as others have harnessed it for evil, and it will draw the five continents and the seas between them; yea. it will draw the whole? earth back to the God from which it has wandered. It is that woo ing and persuasive word that will lead men to give up their sins. Was skep ticism ever brought into love of the truth by an ebullition of hot words against infidelity? Was ever the blas phemer stopped in his oaths by denun ciation of blasphemy? Was ever a drunkard weaned from his cups by the temperance lecturer's mimicry of stag gering step and hiccough? No. It was, "Come with mo to church today and Lear our singing;" "Come and let me introduce you to a Christian man whom you will be sure to admire;" "Come with mo into associations that are cheer ful and good and inspiring;" "Come with me into joy such as you never be fore experienced." With that word which has done so much for others I approach you today. Avi you all right with God? "No," you say, "I think not; I am sometimes alarmed when I think of him; I fear I will not be ready to meet him in the laist day; my heart is not right with God." Come, then, and have it made right. Through the Christ who died to save you, come ! What is the use in waiting? The longer yon wait the fur ther off you are and the deeper you are down. Strikeout for heaven I You remember that a few years ago a steaiu- the struggle: of life. I also apply the word of my text to those who would like practical comfort. If any ever escape the struggle of life, I have not found them. They are not certainly among the prosperous chisses. In most cases it was a struggle all the way up till they reached the prosperity, and since they have reached these heights there have been perplexities, anxieties and crises which were almost enough to shatter the nerves and turn the brain. It would be hard to tell which have the biggest fight in this world the prosperities or the adversities, the conspicuities or the obscurities. Just as soon as you have enough success to attract the attention of others, the en vies and jealousies are let loose from their kennels. The greatest crime that you can commit in the estimation of others is to get on better than they do. They think your addition is their sub traction. Five hundred persons start for a certain goal of success; one reaches it, and the other four hundred and ninety-nino aro mad. It would take volumes to hold the story of the wrongs, outrages and defamations that have come upon you as a result of. your success. The warm sun of prosperity brings into life a swamp full of annoy ing insects. On the other hand the unfortunate classes have their struggles for main tenance. To achieve a livelihood bv one who had nothing to start with, and after a while for a family as well, and carry this on until children aro reared and educated and fairly started in the world, and to do this amid all the rivalries of business, and the uncer tainty of crops, and the fickleness of tariff legislation, with an occasional labor strike, and here and there a finan cial panic thrown in. i3 a mighty thin.-; to do, and thcro aro hundreds and thousands of such heroes and heroines who live unsung and die unhonored. What wo all need, whether up or down in life or half way between, is the in finite solace of the Christian religion. And so wo employ the word "Come!'" It will take all eternity to find out the number of business men who have been strengthened by the promises of God, and the people who have been fed by the ravens when other re sources gave out, and the men and women who, going into thU battle armed only with needle or saw or ax or yardstick or pen or type or shovel or shoelast, have gained a victory that mad'.' the heavens resound. With all the resources of God promised for every exigon-y, no one need bo left in the lurch. A SUBLIME FAITH. I like the faith displayed years ago in Drury lane, London, hi a, humble home where every particle of food had given out, and a kindly soul entered with tea and other table supplies, and found a kettle on the firo ready for the tea. The benevolent lady said, ''How is it that you have the kettle ready for the tea when you had no tea in the house?" And the daughter in the home said, '"Mother would have me put the kettle on the fire, and when 1 said, 'What i3 the use of doing so, when wo have nothing in the house?' she said: 'My child, God will provide. Thirty years Jie lias already provided for me tJirotiffh all my pain and helplessness and ho will not leave mo to starve at last. He will send us help though we do not yet see how.' We have been waiting all the day for something to come, but until we saw you we know not how it was to come." Such things the world may call coincidences, but I call them almighty deliverances, and though you d. not hear of them, they are occurring every hour of every day and In all parts of Christendom. 13ut the word "Come" applied to those who need solace will amount to nothing unless it bo uttered by some one who has experienced that solace. That spreads the responsibility of giv ing tms gospel call among a great many. Those who have lost property and been consoled by religion in that trial are the ones to invite those who have failed in business. Those who have lost their health and been con soled by religion are the ones to invite those who are in poor health. Those who have had bereavements and been consoled in those bereavements are the ones to sympathize with those who have lost father or mother or compan ion or cluld or friend. What multi tudes of us are alivo today, and in cood health and buoyant in this journey of lire, who would have been broken down or dead long ago but for the sustainin and cheering help of our holy religion ! So we say "Come!" The well is not dry. The buckets aro not empty. The supply is not exhausted. There i3 just as much mercy and condolence and soothing power in God as before the lirst grave was dug, or the first tear started, or the first heart broken, or the first accident happened, or the first tortune vanished. Those of us who have felt the consolatory power of re ligion have a right to speak out of our own experiences and say "Come! now to coiiK. What dismal work of condolence the world makes when it attempts to eon- dole! The plaster they spread does not stick. The broken bones under their bandage do not knit. A farmer was lost in the snow storm on a prairie of the far west. Night coming on, and alter lie was almost frantic from not knowing which way to go, his sleigh struck the rut of another sleigh, and he said, "I will follow this rut, and it will take me out to safety." lie hastened on until he heard the bells of the pre ceding horses, but, coming up, he found that that man was abo lost, and, as is the tendency of these who are thus confused in the forest or on the moors, they were both moving in a circle, and A . XI. , ... me runner oi me one lost sleigh was following the runner of the other lost sleigh round and round. At last it oc curred to them to look at the north star, which was peering through the night, and by the direction of that star they got home again. Those who fol- Ow the advice of this world in time of perplexity are in a fearful round; for it is one bewildered soul following anoth er bewildered soul, and only those who have in such time got their eye on the morning star of our Christian faith can find their way out, or bo strontr enough to load others with an all persuasive invitation. But and green with foliage, and all a-sparkle with fountains, and then not allow his son to live in the house or Avalk in the parks? Has God built this house of gospel mercy, and will ho then refuse entrance to bis children? AVill a gov ernment at great expense build life saving stations all along the coast, and boats that can hover unhurt like a petrel over the wildest surge, and then when the lifeboat has reached the wreck of a ship in the offing not allow the drowning to seize tho lifeline or take the boat for tho shore in safety? Shall God provide at the cost of his only son's assassination escape for a sinking world, and then turn a deaf ear to the cry that comes up from the breakers? THE3f YOU HAVE PASSED FROM DEATH TO LIFE. "But," you say, "there aro so many things I have to believe, and so many things in the shape of a creed that I have to adopt, that I am kept back." No, no! You need not believe but two things namely, that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, and that you are one of them. "But," you say, "I do believe both of these things !" Do you really believe them with all your heart? "Yes." Why, then you have passed from death into life. Why, then you are a son or daughter of tho Lord Almighty. Why, then you are an heir or an heiress of jin inheritance that will declare divi dends from now until long after the stars are dead! Hallelujah! Prince of God, why do you not como and take your coronet? Princess of the Lord Almighty, why do you not mount your throne? Pass up into the light. Your boat is anchored, why do you not go ashore? Just plant your feet hard i down, and you will feel under them the Rock of Ages. I challengo the universe for one in stance in which a man in tho right spirit appealed for tho salvation of the gospel and did not get it. Man alive! aro you going to let all the years of your life go away with you without your having this great peace. this glorious hope, this bright expect ancy? Are you going to let the pearl of great price lie in the dust at your feet becauso you aro too indolent or too proud to stoop down and pick it up Will you wear the chain of evil habit when near by you is tho hammer that coukl with one stroke snap the shackle? Will you stay in ti t prison of sin when here is a gospel key that could unlock your incarceration? No; no! As the one word "Come" has sometimes brought many souls to Christ, I wjll try the experiment of piling up into a mountain and then sending down in an avalanche of power many of these gos pel "Comes." "Como thou and all ihv house into the ark;" "Come unto me all ye who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest;" "Come, foi all tilings are now ready ;" "The Spirii and the Brido say 'Come ;' and let him that heareth say 'Come' and let him that is athirst come." The stroke of one bell in a tower may be sweet, but a score of bells well tuned, and rightly lifted, and skillfully swung in one great chime fill the heavens with music almost celestial. And no one who has heard the mighty chimes in the towers of Amsterdam or Ghent or Copenhagen cau forget them. Now it seems to me that in this Sabbath hour all heaven is chiming, and the voices of departed friendsand kindred ring down the sky saying "Come!" The angels who never fell, bending from sapphire thrones, aro chanting "Come!" Yea. all the towers of heaven, tower of mar tyrs, tower of prophets, tower of apos ties, tower of evangolists, tower of the temple of the Lord God and the Lamb, are chiming "Come, come!" Pardon for all, and pease for all, and heaven for all who will come. tEace! When Russia was in one of her great wars the suffering of tho soldiers had been long and bitter, and they were waiting for the end of the strife. One day a messenger in great excitement ran among the tents of tho army shout ing "Peace! Peace!" The sentinel on guard asked, "Who says peace?" And the sick soldier turnod on his hos pital mattress and asked, "Who says peace?" and all upand down the en campment of the Russians went tin question, "Who says peace?" Then the messenger responded, "The czai says peace." That was enough. Thai meant going home. That meant the war was over. No more wounds and no more long marches. So today, as one of tho Lord's mes sengers. I move through these great en campments of souls and cry: "Peace between earth and heaven ! Peace be tween God and man! Peace between your repenting soul and a pardoning Lord!" If you ask me, "Who says peace?" I answer, "Christ our Kinc declares it." "My peace I give unto you!" "Peace of God that nasscth all understanding!" Everlasting peace 1 PARIS DURING THE NEAT SiEGE. Preparations to Thwart tho Future Ef fort of the German Army. 1 The French aro again discussing the provisioning of Yiw'i in c:vo of war, ftnd tho Germans in response are con sidering tho best means of preventing Such provisioning. In tho last war Paris had some 1,830,003 por.;ons with in her walls. Now vhb numlvr would be about 3,000,000. In the bbge 8i52, S01 hundred weight of flour were used. although after Dec. 15, 1870, tho Hour contents of bread was only 5 per cent, of the whole. Tho 35,000 oxen, 180,000 cheep and 9,000 swine in store lasted thirty-eight days, after which the food consisted mostly of 53,000 horses and great quan titles of eggs, potatoes, preserves an. fruits. Tho coal lamina was one o the most painful features of the siege. The necessity of bringing together even the insufficient provision-! quickly and at all hazards cost tho Fron':h govern inent and the city at least 030,000,00 more than would havo been required under ordinary circumstances. Could all the wants and experienced incon veniences bo obviated ia case of an other war? As matters stand at present, French military authorities say they could not. For tho carrying and distribution of bread and coals alone 54,000 cars would j be necessary.

John Gould's new barn is of more in terest to Vi nnhlin than are barns m general, because Mr. Gould is well known as a progressive man, and likely, therefore, to afford valuable suggestions in l.ls various ventures. The general appearance of this barn is indicated in the first cut. By refer ence to the basement plan (Fig. 2) it will be seen that the stable for the cows is in the ell, and the :,ilos and box stalls in the unri-'ht baildma.

The musical art of a people who rep resent one-hfth of the earth's popula tion ought to be studied; if not for the sake of esthetic pleasure, nt least in the interest of scientific; knowledge. Yet there is scarcely a department in the history or philosophy of music concern ing which the information to bo found in tho books is so unsatisfactory as that of Chinese music. Even a historian of the thoroughness and profundity of Ambros, after devoting many pages to an attempt to elucidate the Chinese theory, seems willing to believe the lirst traveler who sets down tho modern practice of the art as nothing but crude. barbaric, unregulated noise. Crude, barbaric and noisy Chinese music cer tainly is, but not unregulated. Even tne little music which can be heard on any holiday in the Chinese quarter of New York will serve to dis close to a discriminating ear that it is nothing if not methodical. The diffi culty on tho part of tho historians has been that they have never como in contact with the Chinese, and there fore have had to depend on the de scriptions of travelers and missionaries touching the practical side of the art. Correctly to apprehend music, how ever, requires special qualifications of education and natural gifts, and these have been possessed by so small a mi nority of those who havo written about China that they are scarcely worth enumerating. II. E. Krehbiel in Cent ury. A Wonderful Clock. A marvelous piece of mechanism has recently been exhibted in Paris. It is an eight day clock, which chimes the quarters, plays sixteen tunes, playing three tunes every hour, or at any in terval required, by simply "touching a spring. The hands go as follows : One once a minute, one once an honr, one once a week, one once a mor th and one once a year. It shows thd moon's age, rising and setting of the sun, the time of high and low tide, besides show ing half ebb and half flood. A curious device represents tho wa ter, showing ships at a high water tide as if they wero in motion, and, as it re cedes, leaves them high and dry on the sands. The clock shows the hour of the day, the day of the week, the day of the month and the month of the year. The mechanism is so arranged as to make its own provisions for long and short months. It also shows the signs of the zodiac, equation, and the diflei ence between sun and railroad time for every day in the year. St. Louis Republic. I 1 1 1 1 I i 32 1 f w I 3, i ? (g) 111!

Turkeys have t'.ie naino of being deli cate and difficult to raise, in consequence of which they are not often kept where they might he with aavautage. In a suitable place turkeys are among the most profitable of all domestic poultry. They are un Joaotauly delicate if kep: on damp soil, but wh?r the ground i:- dry and tho position not too exposed they will do well. A necessity to secur ing success is the provision of shelter for the young birds during that critical period known as "shooting the red.'' When about two months old, however, the chicks are as hardy as other fowls. and can brave the weather without in jury, the prices ootainea tor prime turkeys and the heavy weights to which they can be forced to grow render them exceedingly profitable, and well repay tho extra care attendant on the chickt during the first two months of their lives.

It is claimed by Engl.sh breeders that all modern downs owe more or less their present excellence to having partaken of the Southdown's blood. American breeders appear to ac cept this claim, judging from tho con siderable demand there is in this country for Southdowns to cross on Merinos as well as other sheep: As popularly bred the Southdown has short logs with broad loins, heavy quar ters, well sprung ribs and generally compact frame.

Importance of Puro Water for Country and Suburban Homes The Late Ocorg- Gcildes Plan for Filtering Rain Water Illustrated and Described. At this season of the year much im pure water ia used, causing a great deal of the sickness which prevails in sum mer. Boiling the water before using it modifies the danger. If usad for tea or coffee the process is quite simple. If for drinking water it may be boiled and kept till wanted in a cold apartment or ice house in corked bottles or jugs. When there are mineral impurities that cannot oe removeu oy uoiling tlie water it 13 safest to use filtered rain water. The late George Geddes for more than a quarter of a century used filtered rain water for all domestic purposes in his tamny, ana uuring that timo there had Feeding Sheep. A Missouri correspondent in The New York World says: Clover and millet make good kinds of hay to feed sheeD during tlie winter. When corn is fed it should be shelled and Dut into tiirht troughs to prevent being wasted. It is better in feeding sheep to give small ra tions at a time, just what they will eat up clean ma few minutes, and feed of ter. than to give so much at once that tl ivill scatter and waste it. They are in on wasteful of both grain and hay than an- other class of stock unless care is taken to prevent it. They should have m moro grain than they will eat in ter minutes, and should finish their hay oi fodder inside of half an hour. Beside.' the grain troa jhi saska should ba pro vided for thi h:ty or fodder, so as to keep Ltiein troin getting it under their feet. It is very important that they should be provided with comfortable, dry quarters. where they can be sheltered from storms, but they should bj allowed to run out during pleasant dtys. -i ' 1 i, (.1 , x ,'et A Military Itoad In tho West. A military road was constructed by the United States government to con nect tho military posts of the fur west with one another. Beginning at Fort Leavenworth, o:i tho Missouri river, it passed through Fort Riley at the junc tion of the forks of tho Kaw. and then. still keeping up tho north sido of the Republican fork, went on to Fort Kearny, still farther west, then to Fort Laramie, which in those days was so far on tho frontier of our country that few people ever saw it except military men and the emigrants to California. At tho time of which I am writing there had been a very heavy emigration to California, and companies of emigrants, bound to the golden land, still occa sionally passed along the great military roaa. Interlacing this highway wero innu merable trails and wagon tracks, the traces of tho ureat migration to the El dorado of tho Pacific ; and here and there were tho narrow trails made bv Indians on their hunting expedition.- and warlike excursions. Roads, such as our emigrants had been accustomed to in Illinois, there wero nono. First came the faint traces of human feet and of iuisIkx! horses and ponies; then the well defined trail of hunters, trap pers and Indians; then the wagon track of the military trains, which in course of time wero smoothed and formed into the military road kept in repair by the United States govern ment.

Mr. Spencer, an Englishman rather particular in his dress, one time remarked in a company that no fashion was so ridiculous but would be adopted it worn by a person of sufficient im portance. Tins was objected to, whereupon Mr. Spencer oilered to bet that if he cut off the skirts of his coat and walked out with merely the body and sleeves some one would follow him. The bet was taken, the coat pre pared, and Mr. Spencer used it in Lon don, past a well known tailor who he knew was always looking for some thing new. Thus the "Spencer" came into use.

The ideal construction for a railway absolutely to avoid derailment would seem to bo tubular, with tho cars in side; but as tunnels aro decidedly un popular we must confine our cars by devices placed entirely below the win dows. Fortunately tho modern meth ods of bridge truss design lend them selves readily to a trough like construc tion of considerable depth, with under cut sides that will confino the wheels. or some other projecting part of a car running in tho trough, so that it can not escape iu any direction. This, too, can bo done without much extra ma terial beyond that required for tho depth and consequently strength of the trusses themselves. Such construction is obviously unfitted for crossing any other kind of roadway at grade, and therefore must, in many situations, be elevated upon columns or arches. orum. Guarding Roxes on tho Street. When the cold wind whistles through the streets at nights it makes life vastly uncoinforKte "fw the men " who are paid to guard piles of boxes deft on the pavement outside the big wholesale houses. If they do their duty consci entiously, these watchmen are bot l'ili" to get a pretty fair notion of what a real winter night is. There is one of them, however, who manages to get some comfort out of his ebillv tin,!,, The other night ho was seen taking his. ease in the midst of a lot of packing cases in a street near Broadway. An empty box, set with its open end to ward the middle of the street, had been furnished within with a piece of old carpeting, which served the double purpose of keeping out the draughts and at the same timo of making a rather easier seat. In front of the open end of the box stood an old iron ash can. with holes enough in tho bottom to secure plenty of draught for the fire that blazed within. With this extemporized fur nace a feet few from tho entrance to his sentry box, tho watchman sat in state. The wind could not get at him, and the fire kept him fairly warm. More over, his duties were not of a nature to bother him greatly. IIo was in the heart of tho business district, and few persons wero likely to venture through the street, while the wind was keen enough to make a raid by hoodlums hardly to be expected. A few blocks away another guard was found with out tho inventive genius of his fellow, lie was bundled up in overcoats, but he looked as cold as a country cousin's welcome to town. New York Times.

CISTERN WITH A BRICK FILTER. been no disease of a character resulting rrom the use of bad water. For several years ho had used a brick filter, a sec tion of which is represented in the ac companying cut. It waa twelve feet long, anu ror convenience in covennsr only six feet wide. It would hold 4.000 gallons, the lower course of the ce mented stone walls projected four inches into tho cistern to prevent anv crack. The covering with 6ix inch flag stones. fitted to the walls with cement, left no entrance except through the man hole b and the leader from tho roof. A foot of earth rested on the cover, and the man hole flags included an air spaco shutting out frost. The roof should bo kept clean, and the first water after a long drouth excluded. Tho filter was a hollow brick cylinder, c c, with an inch air hole, and containing the pump.

A Point in Corn Culture. A great deal of injurv is done to corn by deep, elose culture with the double shovel plow or any other implement that severs or gr-itly disturbs the roots. Plowing deep and close to the hills is harmful at any time, but especially late in the season, as the larger roots devel oped late and those which originated earlier in tha growth of thi plants are cut or pulled oil. To aartabi t'.iR ex tent of the danrige from such cultiva tion a trial wa.i m iJu at ths Minnesota experiment station. R nvj of corn were thoroughly root pruned to the depth of si inches and at the same distance from the hills 0:1 all four sides. Tho first root cutting waj dj:ij wiiea tha plants were seven inches high and the second when at a height of fifteen inehes. The effect on the growth of the corn was very marked. Contrasted with similar rows adjacent not root pruae.l the aver age difference in 3-ield was thirteen and a half bushels of corn and oae-qu irter ton of fodder per aero against disturb ing tho roots. In another experiment, made just as the corn was '-laid by," root pruning at t ie distance 0 eight inches from the hills lowered tho yield three bushels to the acre. At this stage of their growth hilling up four inches around tha plants with the hoe had no apparent effect. Destructive Sea Waves.
